I may have mentioned on here that I was tipped off to some Lands’ End Canvas “slim fit” jeans. I was skeptical at first but they were on sale for $15 so I ordered a pair in indigo. When I tried them on I was shocked at how well they fit. A few weeks later, I saw the same pair were on sale for $15 in white. Naturally, I ordered them immediately in the same size as the indigo pair (34x32). I was disappointed to find that they were noticeably smaller than their indigo counterparts. Like, sausage-leg, hipster-skinny jeans smaller (maybe an exaggeration but you can look at the photos and make your own assessment).
I took some measurements:
Front Rise, indigo: 11.25” / Front Rise, white: 10.75”
Rear Rise, indigo: 16.75” / Rear Rise, white: 15.00”
Thighs, indigo: 12.50” / Thighs, white: 12.25”
Leg opening, indigo: 8.00” / Leg opening, white: 7.75”
I have worn the indigo pair several times and the white pair has only been tried on. However, the disparity in measurements doesn’t seem like it could be explained by just stretch. This amount of variation between styles of the same size is unacceptable!
